I have finally learned the English name for these flowers; they are Sundial, I call them Sunny-D. In Vietnamese, it’s Hoa Mười Giờ — the Ten-O’clock flowers.
And I just found out that these lovely purple flowers are called Wild Geranium.
I am sort of on-call for bedtime duty tonight. Peanut had a long nap in the afternoon and that has caused him to still be wide awake at 10 p.m. A while ago I checked in after hearing a few clicks and clangs in his room. When I opened the door I saw him wearing a pair of carpenter jeans that he found from the dirty-laundry basket, which he put all sort of socks in the few pockets.
I was a bit perplexed and amused at the same time seeing him doing this sort of things. I mean, it’s hard to be mad at the guy when he is that cute to begin with. Anyway, upon seeing me entering he asked me to sing Vietnamese children’s songs, Bà ơi/Oh Grandma and Con Chim Non/The young biddy. I gave him some love and tucked him in. He still stirs up a bit in his bed.
